Stanley Markets is a wonderful place full of atmosphere to go and shop for clothing, trinkets and souvenirs, pictures/paintings or just stroll along the beach or have a cold beer at one of the bars there.
Some class it as a tourist trap, but I used to enjoy the trip out there as much as I enjoyed wandering around the shops.
